is no longer illegal, and some christian educators have continued to teach the book of genesis as science. in 2008 bobby jindal passed the science education act which encourages teachers to bring in their own supplemental material when teaching controversial subject such as evolution. but then teachers excluded evolutionism but creationism. and that is what forced students like zach koplan to speak out. >> christians have claimed that it promotes critical thinking. you don't need a law to teach critical thinking in science class. critical thinking is fundamental to the scientific amal method. >> john: joining me now is that very young man, zach koplan at rice university who is leading the fight to repeal the louisiana science education act thank you for coming on the program and for your service to science, and christianity. >> thank you. >> john: what made you speak out on this. >> the louisiana science education act passed in 2008, it was something that had been on my radar since then and symbolized everything that could be embarrassing about my state. i mean, you probably know there ar
for the national education association one of the proud sponsors of the "full-court press," ramon a oliver. thank you for coming in? >> thank you for having me. >> how is our good friend dennis van roekel. >> he is fabulous. >> he is a party animal you know. it's early for him. >> this is his normal time when he is unand around. >> it's true. he does come in pretty early. >> he has been in often. right? at this hour. >> yeah. he is still the math teacher at heart. he is up at the crack of dawn getting ready to teach. >> i guess you can't take that schedule out of a teacher. >> no. not at all. we have the whole team here this morning, peter ogburn dan henning. phil bachus has the phones and cyprian, videographer extraordinaire. before we get back to the issue of guns and schools, very interesting. it surprised me yesterday, an announcement by the american cancer society. this is dr. lynn lichtenfeldt on some amazing progress in this area. no cure yet, but progress. >> the biggest good news is that since 1991, we have had a 20% decline in cancer death ra
-poverty program would be jobs with a living age connected to quality education and decent housing. but it starts with poor and working poor people. think for example a wonderful piece in rolling stone, $34 billion for the top 18 banks in the last four years. $34 billion for the top 18 banks. we can take a slice of that and have tremendous impact in terms of alleviating poverty. not just give outs. we're talking about jobs with a living wage. building the roads, structure and so forth. >> jennifer: clearly if you build infrastructure and roads you have got jobs associated with it, in addition to making sure that people have access to those jobs. you have the opportunity to train people on how to have a long-term decent-paying job. >> that's right. >> jennifer: you have been critical of the president for his stand on a number of issues including what you have said is his silence on poverty. do you think he'll give it more attention in his second term. >> oh we're going to continue to put pressure on him. >> jennifer: no doubt. >> we're going to put the strong -- not just on th
with him about education reform. where i seem to take issue more is on particularly these negotiations where there is always this assumption that if you just held the line and were own manly, that republicans would somehow fade and cave immediately. but their elections have consequences too. they do control the house of representatives. they have enough seats to block legislation in the senate and their incentives are very different particularly in the house, and standing up to obama for them is great politics. it just creates a very difficult situation, and sometimes people like us who are comfortable and don't have to worry about getting our unemployment benefits extended it's easy for us to say he should be strong and tough, and let's call their buff and see what happens if we default on our obligations, but, you know, if the president is elected to be the president, he is supposed to look out for the economy, and even an economic catastrophe for which republicans were blamed would still be an economic catastrophe. and i think sometimes people forget there
. it was an ongoing unfolding education. it started in the 1760s when he was a college opportunity and he was listening to patrick henry and jefferson said henry seemed to speak as homer wrote and he appreciated that because he himself was not a very good speaker. did he master the means of his day. he was a terrific writer, obviously. he was quick and he always wanted the assignment of summarizing what the committee had done or what the bill said because that gave him a certain level of control. >> gavin: when you say prolific writer, and we'll get to that in a moment, 22,000-plus letters saved. it's fascinating to learn he didn't give any speeches in his two terms as president except the two inaugural speeches. >> it seems he was a poor orator so he canceled the state of the union and sent it out in writing. and there is something to that. there is also the part that he believed the formal state of the union, the executive coming of the legislature and speaking and receiving the address and responding to it was too much like britain. his determination in his eight years was to try to un
by glenn beck. where all of that annoying education can be sucked out and your kids can be taught the things that really matter like how the deficit's been destroying the country since january 21, 2009. how zor owes is a hungarian term for class traitor and
the americans who come here over the summer but you typically get a perceived more educated more sophisticated crowd belichick more politically aware. >> and people in the interest of having a good time. and that's sort of the difference between the average tourist season and inauguration is a lot of people are in a better mood. it makes things more fun when you are out and about on the town. >> people are so happy to be here and so excited to see different stuff. the people i ran into over the weekend, it's cool. like i said, i live in adams-morgan and i saw people on 18th street, which is a big party district if you are not familiar with it in d.c. people out there having a good time. it's hard to put a value on that, especially this day and age in our country where things aren't great for everybody. you can see people coming together to have a good time in a peaceful manner. scomplvrnlths. >> we were up to dinner friday night and last night. the restaurant was packed. it was a different mood. it wasn't just your average night in a restaurant. people were h
's really in favor of not doing gun control on the semiautomatic weapons is white, non-college educated men against it 43-55. >> what's surprising there is that it's only 43-55. >> cenk: that group which is deeply republican is not that bad a number. mack ground checks 85-12. if we listen to the american people there goes the gun show loophole and preventing mentally ill people from purchasing guns. >> the white house could be throwing out we want this piece of legislation, this piece of legislation and this piece of ledge reaction or we're going to do executive orders. if and when those pieces of ledge reaction don't pass, the idea will be the president will sign a bunch of executive orders and perhaps the thinking is that we'll all think that the situation with unregulated firearms out there that problem is completely involved when in fact the legislative solutions are so much more necessary than the executive order. >> i think that there is also a political reality, which is you have a senate majority leader in your own party in harry reid saying you know what, i don't think we should pu
and invest in infrastructure, education, healthcare rather than investing in cold war-era weapons systems that are now obsolete. >> jennifer: i hope they listen to you. barbara lee joining us. thank you for joining us. up next, leon panetta calls suicide in this country an epidemic, and the numbers bear them out. but in the gun safety debate numbers don't change things, people do. kim's husband jim was a casualty of that crisis. she's joining us next with her story. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] welcome back inside "the war room." suds in the military are at an all-time high. last year 349 service members took their own lives. that was more killed in the actual afghanistan and iraq wars. there was a 14% jump from those who committed suicide in 2011. for secretary leon panetta this epidemic is personal. >> my wife who is a nurse worked on mental healthcare issues
to the most effective forms of contraception and have comprehensive sex education. not where you have republican domination of the state legislature. in countries very similar to the u.s. all over the world where access to contraception is thorough, you have a very much lower rate of abortion. abortion is because contraception has not been accessible or it has failed. that's what we should be doing. yet you see the republican party cutting off access to contraception. in texas they're cutting off planned parenthood because they're not going to give them state funding for contraception. it's ridiculous. for every dollar you spend on contraception you save $4 for other health wear costs down the line. it surely should be the normal republican position, and you see the party and leadership denying access to contraception. >> the republican party refuses to accept the numbers. in 2011 alone we spent $11 billion on unwanted pregnancies in this country. it's a problem we could easeily solve with comprehensive sexation and accessible contraception for any woman who chooses to use it. what do
to worry about half measures. the second thing is you have a got a president who is been educated, some say through a hard way through an intransijent congress one who is figuring out how to use the leaver levers of power. one thing that struck me when looking at the people at the mall and going back and forth living to the inaugural address was how diverse it was and how enthusiastic it was. and people were estimated 600,000 to 800,000. that's a lot of people. that's a lot of power to put behind tim. he used it on the debt ceiling i expect to see him use it going forward. >> cenk: it is about the start and they are right about executive orders especially on climate change. that's exactly what we're going to talk about in the next segment. we'll talk about the new president obama taking executive action. we'll discuss that when we return. >> obama: some may still deny the overwhelming science but no one can avoid the raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms. they don't know it yet but they're gonna fall in love get married, have a couple of kids, [ children laughing ]
with what you found on the ground? >> no. that's a disgusting statement. they've not been educated -- they've not been executed with surgical precision although maybe a terrible hack surgeon if that's your definition. but there are numerous people, numerous incidents of absolutely outrageous civilian casualties and the other thing that we must understand is even if the drones are technically accurate and there may be some question about that how are they getting the information as to who to attack with drones? well they're ex-pakistani military are bribing people in the pro inses to give them names and -- provinces and that's how and who the drones are being directed at. just like in guantanamo, people are turning in folks who they have grudges with or who are their enemies. we must think about that. these incredible instruments flying from the sky attacking and killing are based on a neighbor turning in someone in another village because they have a drudge. >> john: bribes leading to bad intel are all too familiar in this long and destructive conflict. 20 seconds left. do you think sir th

[ inaudible ] -- the nra proposed arming educators and volunteer security guards and private security personnel. this was a program that was funded to put actual police officers in schools after they received adequate training. there is a huge distinction to police officers who are wanted in a community, as opposed to being forced to have the police officers in their schools. it's based on a clinton era law. and they went on to say if you look at sheriff arpaio in arizona, he's talking about volunteer posses that a far cry from a trained officer, and also become really a part of the school staff and every single adult in the school building really becomes part of one team.

as a nation, who value education, who value understanding situations who say we want to change this dynamic, the very first thing we want to start with is gathering data. >> stephanie: right. it doesn't take a rocket scientist so know that they don't want us to study that because it will prove our point. >> that's right. the first years in this man's senate was when they were lobbying against car safety. and when the data was gathered the nation said oh my glory, we can make safer cars than this. >> stephanie: yeah we used to scream about you can't make me wear a seat belt and it's yeah well, we can because you are killing people. it is the same sort of thing isn't it? >> exactly. >> stephanie: sister it's such an honor and a pleasure. >> i'm glad it worked out. >> stephanie: thank you so much, and continue your great work. >> we'll keep at it.
